Google Keep introduces list and note sharing
There’s many reasons to use Google Keep, but one of the best things about it is the ability to create checklists. This functionality is especially useful for those with an Android Wear device, as you can create a list on your phone and then check it off from your watch.
Now Google is making Keep lists even better by rolling out the ability to share them (and any notes for that matter) with friends and family. More than one user will be able to edit the same notes at once, and all the changes will show up live, in a very similar manner to Google Docs.
As Google says in its blog, this could be particularly useful for those looking to create a grocery list. One person in the house notices you’re out of bread, they quickly add it to the shared list and the next person and the store can grab it and check it off. We could also see it as useful for jotting down shared passwords (for things like a router key, for example), and just about anything that requires fast and easy sharing of information.
It’s unclear whether the update will come as a server side change or will require a newer version of the app, though Google says the change will come to Android users today. At least at the moment, the Google Keep app remains unchanged but we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more.
